S. W. Thomas

1845                Room at Mr. J. Elwood’s Residence, Delhi, New York.

S. W. Thomas was recorded in one announcement and one advertisement in the Delaware Gazette (Delhi, New York).  The announcement appeared on October 1, 1845.  Colored Daguerreotype Likenesses.  S. W. Thomas would announce that he has located himself at the house of J. Elwood, where he is prepared to take portraits, equal, if not superior, to any before taken in Delaware county.                                                           

The advertisement ran from October 8 & 15, 1845.   Daguerreotype Portraits.  The public is respectfully informed that Thomas’ Daguerrian Rooms are now open for the reception of visitors.

To those who may be inclined to favor him with a call, he would say, that being possessed of several important improvements, he is enabled to produce Portraits, which for durability, fidelity, style and cheapness, cannot be surpassed.

Specimens may be seen at this office; and also at his rooms, at Mr. James Elwood’s.

S. W. Thomas is not recorded in other photographic directories.
